Dubai has so many amazing destinations for kayaking and these include the incredible Hatta Dam. Little wonder it’s now becoming a globally renowned boating destination.
Just a few weeks ago, the first yachts dropped anchor at Dubai Harbour, set to be the region’s biggest marina.
And now boating enthusiasts have two new island destinations for boating in the Arabian Gulf at Deira Islands in the north of the emirate, and a private island off Dubai Waterfront, in the south.
Vacationers can take day trips or stay overnight at both Dubai kayaking destinations.
The developer in charge is none other than Nakheel.
“We are expanding our marine facilities to reflect the continued growth in the UAE’s leisure boating industry,” said Aqil Kazim, chief commercial officer at Nakheel.
Both new islands offer anchoring facilities only.
Deira Islands, meanwhile, comprises of four man-made islands adjacent to the Deira district, while the southern Dubai Waterfront marina is close to Palm Jebel Ali. Plans to develop Palm Jebel Ali sadly stalled after the 2008 crash, but Nakheel has previously said it is committed to the project.
